Aligning parallel english-chinese : texts statistically with lexical criteria

Authors Wu, Dekai
Issue Date 1993-08
Summary We describe our experience with automatic alignment of sentences inparallel English-Chinese texts. Our report concerns three related topics: (1) progress on the HKUST English-Chinese Parallel Bilingual Corpus; (2) experiments addressing the applicability of Gale & Church's (1991) length-based statistical method to the task of alignment involving a non Indo-European language; and (3) an improved statistical method that also incorporates domain-specific lexical cues.
